With constant TripAdvisor review titles such as “Perfection”, “Magical! What a Find! Photos don’t do it justice!”, “Wished we could stay longer” and “6 stars”, it is no wonder that Holden Manz Country House is constantly ranked amongst the best in Franschhoek and attracts discerning visitors from all over the world. Having recently received another Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor, they are constantly raising the bar in luxury country house accommodation.
Driving through the historic village of Franschhoek and along 3km of winding roads through the country side, you are surrounded by orchards, vineyards and the majestic mountains as a backdrop. The moment you enter Holden Manz Wine Estate there is an immediate sense of calm and tranquillity. The Country House staff welcome you with a refreshing scented towel and glass of the Estate’s finest. After a brief guided tour of the facilities you are ushered to your suite with open-thatched roof, lavish amenities and amazing views. Privacy and exclusivity is our focus and with all the public space and communal areas it is easy to find some time for contemplation.
A leisurely afternoon by the swimming pool with the sound of the Franschhoek River flowing in the background, being captivated by one of the many interesting books from the extensive collection in the lounge, a romantic stroll through the vineyards or enjoying a glass of wine in front of a crackling fire before dinner are just a few ideas on how to spend your time at Holden Manz Country House.
The small and intimate Spa offers a variety of body and facial treatments. Sourcing local products is high on the list of priorities and what better way in incorporate TheraVine and TheraNaka as their exclusive range of spa products. Produced locally in neighbouring Stellenbosch and utilising grapeseed extracts, this is a perfect match. Look out for monthly packages and specially created treatments like the popular 90-minute TheraNaka Body Journey. For those in need of even further relaxation, the yoga studio is at your disposal day and night.
